Very cute. On the last shot, though, the shadow area behind her head draws my attention.

Thanks Brian.. :) Sloppy PP on the masking I'm guessing... I appreciate
the second set of eyes..

Took my son out to Coolidge fly-in over the weekend.. Had a great time. He seemed to be more interested in the junk lying around than the planes..

I like the first shot quite a bit... :) Nice DOF and impressed on how you guys can keep moving objects in focus.. I fail in that area.

Here's another edit and a special treat (for me)

Treat..

IMAGE: http://www.apoaz.com/ImageShare/albums/userpics/10001/5D3_0647_EF.jpg

So I've got to tell this short story and somewhat rant.

A friend of mine had some old aviation art drawings, which she was trying to sell for months on end. I reached out to a few people and had no luck. I referred her to the CAF in Mesa and for some reason she said they weren't interested and weren't even very nice to her.

So, I shot a few emails to a couple of folks that may benefit from these very nice drawings and did not receive any responses back. So I guess no interest.

I then thought, hey, I could probably post these on another forum I visit that's aviation related in sense with radio control planes and helicopters. Along with that site, I thought I would sign up at the Arizona Aviation Photographers (AzAP) site. I often visit there and would love to contribute. Especially since I see the group most places I visit such as Coolidge, Casa Grand, Mesa Gateway and Falcon field. Heck, I even fly out of some of these places several times a month.

Well, I submit the registration to the group and it turns out access is not granted instantly and goes through the site administrator. No big deal, I'll wait. Later on I get an email asking to fill out several questions related to why I am interested in the group and to show some of my work and website. I answer all the questions and also explain I was hoping to list my friends art works. Later the next day a gentleman PM’s me from the RC site that was interested in the art pieces. I send his inquiry to my friend and ironically, the man was friends with her father, who was friends with the artist. This man had ¾ of the entire collection and these pieces would make it a complete set of over 40 drawings and magazine advertisements. Wow!! What a small world. To make it even better, my friends father (who is deceased BTW) was one of the starters of the New York Aviation Society. This was such an amazing experience for my friend that she donated the entire collection to the organization at no cost.

So moving forward, the Arizona Aviation Photographers (AzAP) send me yet another form to fill out (email questions), which I did, and also told the administrator I sold the art work (my friend gave a way, but there was no need to tell him the story) he asked if I planned to contribute and I said “of course!” I have been wanting/hoping to join regardless.

Well that was it, I didn’t hear back….

Until today........ They denied my request with the message below:

Subject: Re: Arizona Aviation Photographers (AzAP)

Thank you for your interest in the Arizona Aviation Photographers group and forum. Unfortunately, the AzAP Executive Committee has decided to reject your membership request. We feel that since your initial request to join seemed to be just to promote your friend’s aviation art, that you wouldn’t be a good fit within the group and our group’s social structure.

Thanks again, and please continue to enjoy our website.

All the best,


I have got to tell you I was absolutely flabbergasted in the denial. WTF!!! I’m trying to help a friend, contribute to the community, and share in the interest. I filled out several inquiries from the admin and answered every question.

I flippin see these folks all the time!! What a let down and complete disappointment in this group.

It’s a total shame that a community could be so judgmental, inconsiderate and flat out insulting. I had a few other back and forth emails with the admin after the first message above and he seems like a straight up person but Geeze!! Come on, get over yourselfs!!

Seeing as I run in some of the same circles and do a fair amount of business that is aviation related, I will make it a point to share my experience along the way.

What a joke! No good deed goes unpunished!!

So that’s my rant. I think I’ll do a little blog post about it and be over it as well.

Here is an ad I had posted on the RC site.. Cool old stuff..

I suppose in the end it's a good thing because why would anyone want to associate themselves with a group that treats people that way.

Im sorry you had such a bad experience with AzAP. I don't have any hand in vetting new members but I have the ear of "management."

I could look into it if you'd like but I wouldn't blame you for saying Hell No.

Jay, thanks! I would appreciate it in the sense that I hope they wouldn't do it to another person in the future. Perhaps a different way of "vetting"?


Happy birthday too!!!

Thanks

Kenny..
